HANCOCK, Md. (AP) - Highway officials are treating roads in western Maryland in anticipation of a possible winter storm that could affect parts of the state.

The state Highway Administration said Saturday that crews also are monitoring roads for icy patches and are preparing for snow, sleet or freezing rain.

Officials are urging caution for drivers heading west along I-70 through Hancock or I-68 past Sideling Hill.

The state says snow emergency plans are in effect in Allegany and Garrett counties.
